Following the launch of its third slot title of the month, Pragmatic Play has inked a content supply agreement with Spanish sports betting and online casino, VERSUS, with the new partnership further growing its presence in the southwestern European country.
The collaboration will see the Orenes Group brand gain access to the multi-product content provider’s entire slots catalog. As a result, titles such as the 2017 hit Wolf Gold and the mythology-themed Gates of Olympus released in February 2021, as well as more recent releases like Fire Strike 2 and Barn Festival, will be added to VERSUS’ product offering and available to its players.
“Pragmatic Play’s impressive slot portfolio brings vibrant titles, retro hits and forward-looking mechanics together to deliver incredible player experiences,” read a statement from Juan José López, Sports Betting and Online Gambling Director for VERSUS.
“It is an exciting moment for us as we broaden our potential player base with the world-class supplier’s content.”
The Malta-based provider shows no sign of slowing its momentum, having in recent weeks inked several key commercial deals, including leading cryptocurrency casino platform Stake.com, iGaming company Begame Group, South African sports betting operator Hollywoodbets, and most recently, global online gambling company bet365, and Venezuelan online casino and betting operator La Troya Hípica.
Leading European Market:
Also commenting via a statement in a company news release, Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play, said…
“Spain is a leading regulated market in Europe, and we’re delighted to partner with a company as established as VERSUS in the territory.”
Barzely added that VERSUS is a “leading brand,” and they are “excited” to bring their “expansive slot offering to its players as we continue to collaborate with prominent operators, which aligns with our ethos of developing and delivering premium entertainment to users globally.”
New Slot Release:
The new commercial agreement is hot on the heels of the launch of Pragmatic Play’s latest title, The Great Stick-Up, a high volatility, crime-themed video slot that transports players to a small North American town in the 60s where bandits, mystery symbols and free spins can be found around every corner.
Symbols & Paytable:
In this retro-caper, players will be landing tobacco pipes, magnifying glasses, detective hats, maps and stacks of cash, which comprise the game’s lower pays and pay left to right on adjacent reels starting from the far left side of the 5-reel, 3-row game matrix. And spread across the 20 fixed paylines they’ll spin pistols along with four different images of notorious thieves comprising the premium pays.
The four character symbols pay from 15-50x the bet for five-of-a-kind, while the remaining symbols pay from 1 to 10 the stake for the same. And the game’s Wild (character) symbol, also appears on all reels and substitutes for all regular symbols, paying up to 75x the bet for landing five across a line.
Meanwhile, players who land three, four, or five police siren scatters, will activate the Free Spins bous round, which awards a payout of 2x, 10x, or 100x the bet, and 7 free spins. During the bonus, sticky mystery symbols appear along with a progressive feature.
Whenever the sticky mystery symbol lands, it stays in the same position for the remainder of the free spins and opens to unveil the symbol type displayed in a box positioned to the right of the reels.
Players will also find other one-of-a-kind features offered in the Free Spins mode including small overlay symbols, which can land on any of the normal-sized symbols, while also upgrading the value of any mystery symbols when at least TWO are collected.
Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play, also commented on the new game, stating via company news that their latest release “is bound to entertain our customers with a high energy soundtrack and win-boosting features.
“With a maximum win worth 5,000x the bet on offer and unique mechanics capable of boosting values in the bonus round, we expect this to go down a treat with our global audiences.”
Playable on any device, the new title follows the recently released Goblin Heist PowerNudge and the Viking-themed slot, North Guardians, as well as the high-flying Spirit of Adventure and Clover Gold. Each of the games can be found in the multi-product content provider’s rapidly expanding portfolio of more than 200 HTML5 titles.
